You want to change your name "Kathy" to a new name?

What would the new name be?

Oooooo me too, meeee toooooo. I know years ago on the other site, the mods changed my name for me just for fun.  Sometimes I miss those days. It was a blast!!!! Need more things like that!!!



Wait, it wasn't my name, it was the part that was under out pic, where it says member, mod, owner ect. It was that part that changed.

You are right karmacae.  I think there could be some confusion here.

We have a "user ID or Username" and a "members title". Both are able to be changed but they can't be done by the members; the mods and admin can change the "member title" and admin can change the "username".

If a member is especially active on the Forums... I think it's fine to change the Member Title. And if they have a good reason, we can change their Username as well.

I know when it was done years ago, the kicker was, if you posted on a subject, in detail from a - z, they would change your title name any way u like as long as it was appropriate. It got more people to participate.

Yes, we are thinking of something similar, to the member's title. If members are actively posting over a period of time or over a certain post count then we will change the member's title if requested. We are still talking about it, but we are always happy for feedback from you guys. :yes:
